Dogs and cats are animals that many people consider to be part of their family, from teenagers to seniors. Hunters and their kids also fall under that category. The company of animals is welcoming, and their dedication is appreciated.
When a dog wags its tail wildly upon one’s appearance or a cat curls up around one’s legs, their “I love you and missed you” message has been made.
Because of this, most people wish to offer the best of care for them.
Though Craig County is a rural area, Angels of Assisi has been a blessing many have stated, in coming to Craig, offering the many needed services, without people having to travel the mountain, waiting rooms and other animals, as well as the COVID-19 conflict.
The Angels of Assisi Pet Health Clinic will return to Craig County on Thursday, February 18, from 10 a.m. until 2 pm at the Volunteer Fire Department on 443 Conrad Street in New Castle.
“We had a huge turnout in December,” said Gregory May. “And we hope to see the same turnout if not more.”
Angels of Assisi will be offering a variety of shots including:
- rabies, distemper and flea/tick prevention for $10.00 each
- Lepto, Lyme, Bordetella Kennel Cough and FeLV Feline Leukemia for $15.00 each
For those who like Rabies, Distemper and the microchip, they offer this package for $25.
A sick pet exam will be $10 plus the cost of any medications.
The Angels of Assisi website shares that it has grown to become the largest public animal welfare organization in the Roanoke Valley whose facilities include a private animal shelter, Community Pet Clinic, and a 200-acre farm sanctuary, and offer cat adoptions at area Petco and PetSmart Stores.
Their mission is to “change the traditional definition of an animal shelter by offering services and programs to benefit the community, the people that live there, and the pets that they love.”
It also operates the largest private animal shelter in the Roanoke Valley.
They provide ‘reduced cost’ medical care to companion animals with a special emphasis on spaying and neutering to prevent pet overpopulation.
All cats and dogs are welcome and there is no appointment needed. Just arrive with your pet in a carrier or on a leash.
